ABOUT BABY BEATRCE.
The Famous Hamilton Infant Now
Cared for in New York
Bhe sls in the Charge of Robert
Ray's Exeoutor, Mr.
Ample Provislon for Her in the WM
Guesses at the Contents of
Baby Beatrice Hamilton passed last night
in this city, and she will hereafter be cared
for by the executors of the estate of Bobert
Bay Hamilton, whose tragio death in the
Yellowstone region recently ended a career
replete with sensational episodes, says the
New York World of Sept. 29.
SAsn understanding was reached a few days
ago by Gilbert M. Spier, Jr., one of the ex
ecutors of Robert Bay Hamilton's estate.
and Lawyer Joseph Kunsman, who had
been counsel for Mr. Hamilton, that the
terms of the will empowered them tore
jmove the child from the care of Mrs. Rupp.
of Philadelphia, and place her in a home In
this city, where she may be brought up in a
careful way and properly educated.
On Saturday afternoon at three o'olock a
carriage drove up to the house of Mrs.
Howard BRupp at No. 464 Franklin street,
Philadelphia, and from it alighted two men
and a woman. They were evidently expect
ed by Mrs. Rupp. who, opened the door.
The' visitors soon reappeared, the woman
-rrying the famous baby who, it is now
said, inherits a large portion of the dead
.The two men, the woman and little Bea
tries entered the carriage and were driven
to the Broad street station of the Pennsyl
vania railroad, where they took the four
o'clok train for this city. Arriving at Jer
sey City they entered a carriage and waere
driven rapidly away. Who the woman was
could not be learned yesterday, but the men
wre said to be E. l Vollmer, a lawyer of
this city, and Gilbert M. Speir, a life-long
friend of Robert Ray Hamilton.
The will of Robert Ray Hamilton has not
yet been filed for probate, and will probably
not be until the return of Edmund L. Bay
lies, one of the executors. But the terms of
the will are known to Mr. Speir, Mr. Kuns
man and Mr. Vollmer, and their action in
removing Beatrice to this city is said to be
in accordance with Mr. Hamilton's last in
struotions. That the baby will be well pro
vided for by the will was not denied last
night by one of the three men who know
the condition of afaires and he even inti
mated that a large portion of the estate will
be held in trust for the child. The estate is
largely of realty in this city and a ranchoon
Snake Hill, Idaho, the income being esti
mated at $18,000 a year.
The World's authority for this story said
to a reporter last night: "It is useless to
look for the baby, as it will be a fraitless
search. I will say this, however that you
not be able to find any 'of the gentle
men interested to-night, and I know you
cannot fiAnd Mr. Vollmer in particular."
Further than that he would not say, but
his manner indicated stronger than words
that baby Beatrice is under the proteo
tion of Mr. Vollmer or a person of his e
Mr. Vollmer was for years the confi
dential clerk of Robert .ay Hamilton.
When Robert Ray Hamiltondecided to buy
he Idaho ranch and go west be made Mr.
Vollmer his attorney. Mr. Kgunman mere
y had the care of legal matters pertaining
to the suit in which Hamilton sought to
annul his marriage to Evangeline Steele
Hamilton, who is now in the Trenton jail
win. out a two years' sentence for an
assault on Mrs. Donnelly, the nurse of
The assault occurred at Noll cottage on
ennessee avenue. Atlantio City, on Aug.
86,1887, and first brought into prominence
the troubles of New York's ex assembly
During the trial evidence was produced
'howing that baby Beatrice was not really
the child of Robert Ray Hamilton, and that
Mrs.Hamilton bought fourcehildren at an ar
erage price of $10 each, but they either did
not sane her purpose or had died. So
Beatrice, it was said, was procured and
lmed of on Mr. Hamilton as his heir.
On Sept. 8 Robert Ray Hamilton made
re. Howard Rupp, of Philadelphia, the
ustodian of baby Beatrice. On that day
rs. Rupp visited Mrs. Hamilton in the At
antic City jail. She carried Beatrice, who
as extravagantly dressed. On each of the
tiny arms was clasped a bracelet of Etru-s
can gol In the center of eaoh golden
band blazed a solitare diamond. On the
middle finer of the right hand the baby
wore a ol ring, which was attaehed to the
raeet by a finely wrought chain of deli
pate workmanship. Herbaby robe was of
he finest white silk.
Mrs. Hamilton was in bed at the time of
he visit, but Baby Beatrice was greted
th every demonstration of motherly eo
on. Subsequently, and about September
Mrs. Rupp, who kept the boarding house
tNoll cottge, went to live in Phildel
"I bromuht this child with me," said Mrs.
upp, at the time, "because Mr. Hamilton
asked me to look after the baby at May's
ding when his wife was convicted. I
keep the baby until Mr. Hamilton tells
what to do with her."
I About October 1,1889, the law arm of
Root & Clark began an action for Robert
Ray Hamilton for the annulment of his
lage to Eva L. Steele. The application
as based on two ount as follows: (1)
hat the woman had a husband at the time
f her marriage to Hamilton; (2) that the
arriage was obtained by fraud. It was
a suit for divorce. The ase was in the
hands of Referee Van Duzer, of Elmira, at
time of the death of Mr. Hamilton, and
that sad and tragic event raises a most un
and odd question.
"'Unless Eva Steele had a husband living
t the time of her marriage to Robert Ray
Hamilton," said Lawyer Abe
"sheis to-day his widow and entitled to her
dower. If he left no will she must receive
her one-third of his real estate and one
fat that her husband had the best
for the annulment of the marriage,
ano matter how eatthe rahud bywhbih
t marriage was bro ht about, would not
ter the ease in the lightestdegree. If
fraud and conspiracy of the most damnable
nd were proven and the judge was about
Ipplng his pen in the ink for the nrose
writig adrees annulling the m .i
at that instant and before the judg
time to afx his silanatuse, the sband
die, the woman would remain his
ela the sight of the law and would have

As it is now tacitly agreed that Robert
Ray Hamilton acknowledged Beatrice as
hit child and heir, the question is, to what
extent will the baby be cared for by the
That Robert Ray Hamilton loved the
baby is an undoubted fact. He regularly
sent allowances for the child, and the last
Chidatmas he sent her two small turquoise
pina and two picture books. At the same
time he sent a letter to Mrs. Rupp inquir
ing after the healthof the baby and request
ing her to give the child the best of care.
Just before he left for the west he again
went to Philadelphia to see the child.
When he left he told Mrs. Rupp that he
would be back again in the fall to see her
and the baby.
